10 Reasons to Believe Moses Preached Islam

Ten commandment writingsHere are 10 reasons as to why Muslims believe Moses preached Islam that are guaranteed to change your perception.

The Ten Commandments are considered cornerstone of the Jewish law that govern ethics and belief in God. They are derived from the two books of Torah- Exodus and Deuteronomy. Christians equally revere them. Jesus himself stated that he came NOT to abolish the laws of Moses but to actually implement them.

“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. Matthew 5:17

But do the Muslims cherish and follow the Ten Commandments?

Let me start by stating that many Muslims are not familiar with the Ten Commandants as they appear in the Torah. However as you are about to find out, the Qur’an’s teachings on the subject matter of the Ten Commandments are strikingly similar.

The numbering of the Ten Commandments varies slightly. For example Catholics combine the first two into one and they divide the 10th into #9 and #10. However there is consensus as to what verses constitute Ten Commandments.

Here are the ten reasons why Muslims believe the Ten Commandments are indeed Islamic – one commandment (mitzvah) at a time.

 #1: I am the Lord, Your God… Exodus 20:2 and Deuteronomy 5:6

Believing in One God and making no partners is the most fundamental Islamic teachings. It is frequently emphasized in the Qur’an.

 Islamic Commandment:

So know that there is no god but God. The Qur’an 47:19

Ten commandments jews at the wall#2 You shall not have any other gods but me. Exodus 20:3 and Deuteronomy 5:7

Islamic Commandment:

Do not call upon another god alongside God. There is no God but Him. Everything will perish but his countenance. Judgment belongs to Him, and to Him you will return. The Qur’an 28:88

Your God is one God. There is no God but Him, the Gracious, the Merciful. The Qur’an 2:163

#3 You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vein. Exodus 20:7 and Deuteronomy 5:11

Islamic Commandment:

And do not make God a target for your oaths for doing good or avoiding evil or reconciling people   Allah does not call you to account for what is vain in your oaths… The Qur’an 2:224-225

Unto Allah belong the best names, so call upon him by them and leave those who violate the sanctity of his names.  The Qur’an 7:180
